I took (pretty much) that exact trip last week at a bit later time, and didn't feel the slightest bit in danger. The metro is crowded with all kinds of normal folks. You can't beat 5 pesos for transportation that far, and it shouldn't vary much with traffic etc. You should be able to get a seat for many of the stops since the University is at the end of the ...

As you noted the bus times aren't ideal, InterCity has a bus that leaves daily in the afternoon, as does Alpine Connexions. It looks like Atomic Travel does have a morning, albeit not early morning, bus: 10:00 Dunedin - 14:30 Wanaka (via Cromwell).

The solution on short notice was to change Google search criteria to something along the lines of "private car hire Dunedin", which resulted in a chauffeur service which also rented their executive cars. With full insurance, it resulted in about 4 times the price of a cheap rental agency, but was a very safe and well handling car.

The reason for the strike ending at 22h is so they can attempt to get all the material at the required destinations for the next day, e.g. they need x amount of trains in Gent or Oostende so they can handle the morning traffic the next day. Note that this is not a guarantee for success, I've often experienced delays the day after a strike because not all ...

Make sure you have different means of transport. It is very doubtful that you will see a train that day. I suggest you take a cab, at that hour there shouldn't be too much traffic. And it's not too hard to get one in Brussels.

It depends. The question is if they block access to signaling control builing or not. You can not predict this beforehand, but generally they do. If signalling control building is inaccessible, no trains can pass in the area controlled by that specific building. If the signaling control buildings remain functioning, you can count on some trains, but can not ...

Strikes usually end officially at 10 p.m., but don't count on any train after that time. There might be an odd train, but usually there is not. In reality the normal schedule resumes the next morning with a few cancelled trains still possible. Source: I take the train daily in Belgium and have seen my share of strikes. If you are referring to the upcoming ...

In El Calafate, you will find lots and lots of small travel agencies that offer tours to Torres del Paine. They're quite flexible at organizing whatever you want to do at a reasonable price. Of course in your case, you'll want to book in advance. So just search for "travel agency el calafate" and write some emails.

Bus is around 80-90 € (return). I think that there is very expensive and only an option if Flight depends on the day and company. The cheapest companies are Ryanair and EasyJet. Expect to pay at least 40 € for a return ticket to Porto and 60 € to Lisbon. Anyway, you can find one way tickets from 15 € to Porto or 27 € to Lisbon if you plan in advance. I ...

Indian railways apply a restriction to the total weight of your luggage in kilograms. You can see this as per the luggage rule. For your class of travel, the limit is 50 Kilograms. Though there are dimension limits, I think being standard size your luggages should not exceed them: Trunks, suitcase and boxes having outside measurement of 100 cms. x 60 ...
